The cause and effect on the issue of selling organs is spanning around the world, it's not just something in foreign countries, it's everywhere and selling organs is illegal everywhere except for Iran. Costa Rica has seen a huge increase in the black market and citizens selling their organs for money, sometimes from 5,000 even up to 20,000, it has been going on for year but these day's it's harder for police to find them now, they are organizing a huge crime system where they higher medical physicians and locals to sell.(Pete Peterson 2013) Right now the only thing that is legal is the donation of organs, while some organs have to be donated from those who are diseased because the body can't function without them there are some organs that can be donated from someone and the body is still able to function as normal. While this is true people are starting to sell those organs that they can function without, and people would do anything to receive an organ in these times because there is a shortage, the people who these organs are coming from for the most part would be from the poor. Unfortunately most of these organ trades and sales go straight to the black market, it's easier to find the organ needed for the donor and it's easier for the person selling the organ to get money for the organ they sold. This is causing major problems in the organ industry and there needs to be some sort of solution that needs to be set in place, while the black market for anything will most likely stay around through anything it's possible to cut those markets down, and the majority of organs should come through donations. It's being debated if organs should be sold rather than donated because there is a shortage for those who need an organ. While this is true the main people who are selling their organs are the poor and needy, they can't find another way of living and have run out of funds to support themselves and or and or their family, which if why they result in possibly selling their organs, not legally by donating but illegally mostly going onto the black market and another issue at hand if organ trafficking. The events happening in Costa Rica are a very strong representation of what is going on around the country and in some cases in our cities. It starts with a "snitch" who goes around to the locals mainly poor who needs money to sell their organs (mainly the kidney) for money and then they schedule them for an "appointment" for an these appointments turn into extractions that day because they offer them so much and it's cash most of the time. They set up exams at a certain place like small food chains and local businesses, most of these places are set up to look like offices and are done by a illegally hired medical help. After they have the organ they call up the recipient and tell them the good news, they fly them to another country and put the organ in illegally as well. The whole process is cruel and taking advantage of those who don't have the money to survive "Outside of Costa Rica, reports have shown other heinous ways to harvest organs, including abducting and drugging adults, children, and babies." (Peterson 2013) This is obscene that children and babies are being affected by this horrible act of organs sales and trafficking, there needs to be laws that surround the black market and its needs to crack down on these people. On the Ethical standpoint of human organ sales, the effects have hit every age and race, these problems are real and the world needs to realize that trafficking is out there and it is real. The question that still stands and is the biggest argument with legalizing the sale of organs is, should we allow this to become legal if the majority of people selling their organs are poor. The effects of this could be substantial, having the poor as the main source of the industry in organs is taking advantage of them, they also don't have as good as health than others that might be wealthier because they haven't had regular checkups because they might not have insurance. If the sale of organs became legal it would need to come from a verity of people not just the poor but the case is "most of these organs come from very poor people. Those opposed to legalization of payments for organs fear a similar trade in this country, with pressures brought to bear on the poor to sell their bodies in a literal sense."(Electronic Ardell Wellness Report 2002) These people that this there is no other way than selling an organ should not resort to selling their body. There are other ways of finding income, while the job market is low right now there are jobs out there, they could get aid somehow through the state or they could go through shelters and food banks to feed their families. The point is no one should ever feel like they need to sell a part of their body to feed their family, if that is the case then our country needs to focus on the real problem of helping those I need and getting jobs to those who need it as well. An opposing case of the matter of selling human organs would be making the sale of organs legal in the United Sates as well as around the world. Rob Lawler explains it something like this; "We should accept that we all form one body. Furthermore, we should conceive of our bodies as gifts since we did not decide to be born. We have been given life by others. Because my body is never fully my own." (Bioethics Jun 2011) This is arguing the fact that we should receive body part as such things as a gift and argues that it's a natural thing to give up such things as organs for sale that ay others can be ready to receive them. Another argument in the case to legalize organs is that there is a shortage in organ donations and that donor "as the most rightful owners of the value of their organs and tissues, have a right to participate in this industry. The literature advocating the removal of restrictions on human-organ and tissue sales has mostly done so on the grounds that it is justified by the need to eliminate the organ shortage." (Boyer 2012 B.Y.U.L.) Yes there is a shortage of human organs at this time but in defense of both of these arguments the organs if made legal would have to have substantial laws and regulations guarding it. While there are some laws that surround the organ sales right now and to help keep them off the black market it is hard to find those who organ traffic and sell to the black market, there needs to be a crackdown with this issue. Another thing that goes against making the sale of organs legal is that it's a human body part, it should be treated just like that, with respect and dignity. Selling a body part is invasion and exploitation to that person, even if it is a personal choice there are some cases in trafficking it is not, while there are options for the poor they may not see it in that way and would sell their selves for the money. The cause of the organ sales and trafficking in Costa Rica's brings the subject into light and should prompt anyone to research on the subject. There is a huge problem going on with trafficking and the black market, people mostly the poor are being taken advantage of and being offered large sums of money if they sell an internal organ. They might think or seem to have no other options than to sell their body part but there needs to be aids out there for all the poor other than selling organs, it's a lot of money but it could risk their lives and the life of the receiver as well if that person who donates the organ is not healthy enough to donate. Overall making organ sales legal should not happen, it should stay illegal because it's an exploitation of the poor and people should treat theirs and others body's with respect and dignity.
